Toronto Paramedics to help Stacey see Britney
Two paramedics from Toronto EMS are helping Stacey McFarlane, a 14-year old
patient at Sick Kids Hospital, to realize her dream of seeing Britney Spears in
concert on Saturday night.

Stacey, who is a huge fan of Britney Spears, suffers from Cystic Fibrosis and
is currently staying at the Hospital for Sick Children awaiting a lung
transplant. Given Stacey's condition, the only barrier to her going to the
concert was transportation. A social worker at Sick Kids Hospital contacted a
paramedic friend wondering if it would be possible to have Stacey taken by
ambulance to the Air Canada Centre for Britney's concert on April 3. Two
Toronto EMS paramedics, Rory O'Neill and Sara Funston, have volunteered their
time to take her to the show.

Date: Saturday, April 3
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Place: Air Canada Centre, Gate 2 (off Bay Street).

Members of the media are invited to come to Gate 2 at the Air Canada Centre to
meet Stacey and the paramedic volunteers. Note: At the request of Stacey's
family, there will be no media availability inside the A.C.C. or at the
Hospital for Sick Children.
